I've been to The Olive Tree lots before so when my friend came to stay from Manchester it seemed like a winning choice but the service was really poor. Admittedly this was unusual but we had to ask for menu's, it took ages for our order to be taken and then when we did ask to see the dessert/drinks menu, 20 minutes later it hadn't arrived and no-one had come over so we just asked for the bill and left. I can't fault the food, I was just disappointed as I'd been raving about it all day to my friend. It doesn't mean I won't be back but fingers crossed for next time.

I love the Olive tree but do find the lighting much too bright, which I think affects the atmosphere in the evenings. This may sound like a minor detail, but I think would change the vibe a lot with dimmed or more subtle lighting.

The service was superb, atmosphere was great, the wine was good, however the food was only ok. We tried the sharing banquet £24.95 pp, which was ok. We’ve sampled Halloumi in other local restaurants which was nicer. The calamari was tougher than most and the whitebait was soggy. The majority of the warm food gets cold quickly as it arrived altogether within 10 mins, not allowing time to eat/appreciated each plate. We would return, just not with the banquet tasting menus. All other aspects made for a good evening. Thanks

Lovely little restaurant, have been a few times before and will be going back. Def make sure you book in advance as very popular. Good selection on the menu of Greek foods.

Really enjoyed our meal. Since the dishes arrived in quick succession it might not suit parties looking spend a longer evening together.

We had a fabulous meal for my son's 14th birthday. The service and food was fantastic and the fact that they encourage you to bring your own cake which you can eat after your meal was wonderful. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Always enjoy our visits to the Olive Tree. We'd prefer if the souvlakia came with a dip (tzatsiki) on the side. Staff very friendly as always

I visited with my boyfriend and we had such a wonderful evening. All staff were friendly and attentive throughout our evening. The menu is packed full of delicious dishes! We chose one of the set menu platters and it did not disappoint! Could not recommend highly enough, we cannot wait to come back again.

it was a little disconcerting that,wheen we arrived the first thing anyone said to us was 'You will have to keave by 8.30'. A hello and welcome would have been much better. some of the food was exceptionally good e.g the houmous, tsatziki, kalimari and mousaka. Some was not so good e.g. i dont like cold dolmades and some was awful e.g the stifado and the potatos - they were so salty as to make them pretty much inedible. At the best part of £40 a head for such small portions i think you are overpriced. We felt very rushed and for what was supposed to be a relqxing and pleasant evening we felt that we were 'on the clock' and that detracted from the whole dining experience
